There is an extremely rare item currently up for grabs on eBay. An official WRC trophy that is a piece of Rallying history in itself.
Louise Cook is a rallying talent that seems to collect silverware wherever she competes. She has proven herself as a winner, claiming 4 rally titles in her career and competing across the globe.
But Motorsport can be a cruel mistress, an extortionate one too, and drivers like Louise Cook have to make big decisions and bigger sacrifices to continue racing.
Cook is having to sell her silverware on eBay in an attempt to secure funds to race in the WRC and WRC Sweden for the upcoming season.
Imagine pouring your heart and soul into a year-long slog, winning, and then having to sell your trophy online to fund the campaign the following year. It isn’t fair at all!
The item Louise is having to sell would be a gem in any Motorsport Memorabilia collection. An official FIA rallying trophy that was awarded to Louise after she won the FIA Production Car Cup Championship for 2WD in 2012.
Her winning of the Championship was substantial in that she became the first ever female to win a FIA Rally Championship that wasn’t specifically made for women.
If you’re a serious Rally fan or collector, click here and join the bidding war so Louise Cook can continue to turn heads in the Rallying world. A driver of this ilk shouldn’t miss out on potentially making further Rallying history because of a lack of funds.
Louise’s ultimate ambition is to become the first female WRC champion and one of you guys out there could help to make that a reality.
